Omen 17 17-an012dx Ram Upgrade

Omen 17-an012dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an Omen 17 and I want to upgrade the RAM to the maximum of that which the motherboard/processor can handle. Any tips and suggestions on RAM chips or specifications?

Hello @IIWiltedII 

 

According to your specs, you should currently have 12GB of ram.

It will support up to 32GB of memory. Page 1 of your manual... http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c06001792

Were you thinking of replacing one stick and making it 16GB or replacing both for 32GB?

What ever you decide, both sticks timings and voltage should match to run more efficiently. If you purchase one new stick, use a tool like CPUz to find the current timings. IF you buy all new ram, get a set that is matched already.

Example:

Several of us recommend Crucial Memory because of their excellent guarantee.

https://www.crucial.com/usa/en/compatible-upgrade-for/HP-Compaq/hp-omen-17-an012dx

But you can go with what ever brand you wish.

It will use DDR4 2666 MHz 1.2v laptop memory and its stated in the manual I linked earlier.
